The Expired Metatags

The expired Metatags

I have heard that keywords are important, now I should ignore them?
I have heard that metatags are not important, should I ignore them?

This is a HUGE point of confusion. The keywords meta tag – a very specific portion of the page, no longer impacts SEO. Keywords and phrases within other areas of the page, in contrast, are highly important. Google and other search engines no longer consider the keywords meta tag, but they are smart enough to figure out what keywords and phrases have been used in the pages content, title and meta description. Disregard the keywords meta tag all together and focus on your titles, descriptions, and on page content

To start with the keyword metatag: this specific metatag is obsolete.
Google and other search engines no longer consider the keywords meta tag for ranking

The Revisit tag would tell the spider of a search engine to come back to your website and index it again.
This meta tag was used by several North American search engines back in the ’90s.

Since June 2017, Google announced that they are no longer supporting using the description and title from DMOZ, the Open Directory Project.

Sometimes an old description tag remained in the index of Google. Despite the fact that you changed relevant information on your website and submitted this to Google, the old description stayed in the Google search results.

The meta tags no-email-collection was an unspam.com initiative. Sure, the die-hard spammer would not be stopped by this tag. This tag was mainly used to have a statement on your website: we don’t want you to harvest our email-address.

The meta tag contained a link to the page with your statement regarding spam runs and harvesting on your website
